Kilobit to Bit calculator (kb to b)

Convert kilobits to bits (kb to b) by typing the amount of kilobits in the input field below and then clicking in the "Convert" button. If you want to convert from bits to kilobits, you can use our bit to kilobit converter.


Formula used to convert kb to b:

F(x) = x * 1000

For example, if you want to convert 1 kb to b, just replace x by 1 [kb]:

1 kb = 1 * 1000 = 1000 b


  1. Multiply the amount of kilobits by 1000.
  2. The result will be expressed in bits.

About the converter

How many bits are in a kilobit? 1 kilobit [kb] is equal to 1000 bits [b].

Note that this is a high-precision kb to b calculator, but rounding errors may occur (in a very small percentage of the cases).

Convert kilobits to bits (kb to b) by pasting or typing the amount of kilobits in the kilobits input. Check the formula section to manually convert kb to b.

About Kilobits (kb)

A kilobit is a unit of measurement for digital information and computer storage. The prefix kilo (which is expressed with the letter k) is defined in the International System of Units (SI) as a multiplier of 10^3 (1 thousand). Therefore, 1 kilobit is equal to 1,000 bits. The symbol commonly used to represent a kilobit is kb (sometimes as kbit). However, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) recommends the symbol kbit instead of kb.

Many people think that 1 kilobit is equal to 1024 bits. This is wrong because is contrary to international standards. The only unit used to represent 1024 bits is a kibibit.

About Bits (b)

A bit is the basic unit of measurement used in computing (for example, in data storage), digital communications (for example, express the amount of information sent) and information theory. The name bit is a portmanteau of binary digit. The symbol used to represent a bit is b.

As a binary digit, the bit represents a logical value (having only one of two values). It may be physically implemented as a two-state machine. It can be represented as either 0 or 1, true or false, + or -, yes or no, on or of, etc.
